held this afternoon before Judge Moulton
In Ihe city hall. The case was conducted
by E. C. Denio for the prosecution and At
torney McKelvey of Santa Ana; C. W. Sex
ton of Los Angeles, court reporter. The
fust witness called and sworn was George
Fetterman. son and partner of the propri
etor of the livery stable. The witness de
scribed the circumstances of the hiring of
the team and wagon, the conversation held
and the clothes the prisoner wore. Sam
Fetterman, a younger son, was the second
Witness called and his testimony was es
sentially that of the first. The latter was
but 15 years old. but he was very positive
as to the facts and identity of the prisoner
who hired the team. No number of ques
tions nor cross questions of attorneys could
shake his testimony nor hinder him in the
statement of the circumstances. Joseph
P. Stroud was the third witness. He testi
fied to having seen the prisoner in tho
bowling alley on the evening of the 7th of
July. J. M. Brown, the fourth witness
called, testified to having been in the bowl
ing alley on the 7th of July and having a
conversation with the defendant. Mr.
Brown had known him a year in Anaheim,
had been at his father's house, where wit
ness had been engaged In taking care of
the cemetery. P. Varlo, the fifth witness,
keeps a teed yard and sells wagons In Los
Angeles. Two men called at his place of
business to sell a wagon, of whom the de
fendant was one. Ho described the trans
action that resulted in his giving them $5
and a horse and buggy for the wagon. The
men claimed to have bought the wagon In
Anaheim and the witness was very posi
tive as to the Identity of the men. whom
he recognized by peculiar formations of
nose and teeth, though he could not de
scribe the dress of either man. Charles
Minehart, a German, who buys and sells
horses in Los Angeles, testified to trading
with the defendant and another man for
the team and one set of harness. He was
positive as to the identity of the defend
ant and was quite humorous in his de
scription of the trade. Louis Eserlle, who
works for Minehart, gave essentially the
same testimony and corroborated that of
the former witness. He had known de
fendant six years In Los Angeles and at
Dodd & McGary's grading camp, and was
positive he was the man with whom the
trade was made. H. M. Wilson, deputy
sheriff of Long Beach, described the re
covery of the property and arrest of tho de
fendant. George Fetterman was recalled

AVALON, Sept. 7,-(Regular Corre
spondence.) A. C. Brode of Los Angeles
joined a party of mariners on the Fleet
wing yesterday. His great ambition was to
make a record as a jewfish expert, and
when the yacht reached the grounds he was
all anxiety to catch one of these immense
fish. When he felt a big tug on his line
he thought he had one sure, and In com
pany with Capt. McDonnell he jumped into
the boat In tow and endeavored to capture
the monster. It was a terrible disappoint
ment to himself and the captain when he
found that Instead of having a jewfish on
the end of his line he had caught a news
paper correspondent, and he Is still en
deavoring to figure out whether it is better
to kill a Jewfish or a newspaperman.

they went out with Jim Gardner and cap
tured the largest jewfish \>n record He
weighed 470 pounds, and they had a great
time in catching him. Jim says that the
cry of "More line, more line," came near
driving him wild, but eventually they tired
him out, and It is safe to say that three
prouder Germans do not exist than the
heroes of this fishing story.

by the way, is an expert amateur photo
grapher, endeavored last evening to get a
photograph of Black Prince, the largest of
Adgie's collection of lions, while in his
cage. Trainer Hall accompanied Mr. Semon
into the cage, but somehow the big Hon did
not take kindly to the Idea of being "took,"
and pushing the trainer aside made a
vicious effort to mutilate a portion of the
anatomy of the daring photographer. It is
needless to say that Manager Semon's exit

PASADENA, Sept. 7.—(Regular Corre
spondence.) At the meeting of the city
council this afternoon there were present
President llartwell and trustees Reynolds,
Washburn and City Attorney Arthur.
C. J. Willett, esq., was on hand to rep
resent the protestants In the East Side
sewer question, but that matter was post
poned three more weeks.
Resolutions for street work were adopted
for Miles street, Wichita, Eastern, Earl
ham. Santa Barbara and Eureka streets.
On motion of Tustee Reynolds, City Attor
ney Arthur was instructed to draft an or
dinance for the restriction of cattle keep
ing within the city. The council is not
aiming at the abolition of the family cow.
but it Is their sentiment Uiat cow owners
should not maintain more than two cows
upon any lot. vacant or otherwise, if
neighbors within 500 feet object.
Another phase of the sewer question in
troduced by Trustee Reynolds called forth
some sharp argument. Mr. Reynolds said
that at present a property owner who
wishes to connect with the sewer must pay
therefor 40 cents per front foot of his prop
erty. He advocated a uniform charge of
$20 for each connection, regardless of front
age, saying that Superintendent of Streets
Buchanan approved of this modification
of the ordinance. In support of his plan
Mr. Reynolds argued that It would be an
injustice to charge a man who owned say
800 feet frontage $320 for a connection,
when he owned a small house or a tent and
most of his land was acreage, while a man
with a mansion would pay $20 for a connec
tion on fifty feet frontage.
For the other side. Attorney Arthur said
the man with the tent might be smart
enough to let tenants on his 800 feet sub
connect his connection. As no agreement:
could be made the matter was dropped.!
Since the establishment of the system, aj
year and a half ago, only $200 revenue has
been brought In by sewer connections.

erect a sign In front of his place of busi
ness at 18 West Colorado street, under the

ance with the ordinance.

need of a cement sidewalk on the west side
of Lincoln avenue in front of lots 13 and 14,

created a disturbance at his home yester
day evening. Haskin received some money

In Arcadia, near Baldwin's ranch, to get

enly home and kept people awake all night
with their disturbances at the hotel. Has
kin would have beaten his father for re
monstrating with him but for outside In
terference. The old gentleman telephoned
to the marshal this morning and later came
down and swore out warrants, which Con
stable Slater took to Sierra Madre to serve.
Haskin was brought here, pleaded not
guilty before the recorder and was held In
$125 cash ball for disturbing the peace. He
was given over to Constable Slater's
charge, fed at the Saddle Rock this even
ing and taken Into Los Angeles to jail on

to call for considerable ingenuity in Its
handling the coming season. The consta- I
bles refuse to arrest one without a warrant, I
as they are not in need of any fees this year, I
being on a fixed salary, and the city police I
are looked to for relief from the tramps'
and hobos. The district attorney, F. B.
Daley, has given an unofficial opinion that
the city recorder can try hobos the same as
a Justice of the peace, and on conviction
send to the county Jail and collect a fee
for It from the county. This will furnish
an outlet for the disposal of the hobo and
the recorder can divvy with the police to
secure their aid in running In every one
that enters the city. The board of super
visors kicked at this view, but after listen
ing to explanations from the attorney ac
quiesced and stated they would only have
to board the prisoners, and they could work
them hard and get that amount back In
broken rock. So the hobo is fixed.

Cream Baking Powder
World's Fair Highest Award.
Official Fa^
Awarded Price Baking Powder Co.
This should settle the question of the World's Fair award
to Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder. It is a shallow subterfuge
] of a would-be competitor of this company to continue advertising
f as it has been doing, that "No baking powder received an award
[ over it at the World's Fair," when as a matter of fact, it was not
( even an exhibitor —as the following statement from the chief of
i awards proves.
, J. S. Browning, chief of awards, makes the following declar
{ ation: "Neither the records of this department nor the official
. catalogue show that the Royal Baking Powder was an exhibitor,
consequently it could not receive an award." Such duplicity
amounts to nothing more or less than deliberate fraud.
With all their claims no medal is shown.

PARKERSBtTRG, W. Va„ Sept. 7.—
J. C. Carroll, claiming to be a practicing
physician of Los Angeles, occupies a
room at a hotel here under peculiar cir
cumstances. He says he is traveling for
his health, ostensibly, but really to get
away from the ghost and voice of his
second wife which haunt him continual
ly. His first wife died many years ago,
leaving him four children, all of whom
died suddenly. The doctor married a
second time, taking a young and beau
tiful woman, as his bride. She died in
his arms on January 1, 1896, and the next
day he claims to have heard her calling
to him every hour of the day. She con
tinued to call him until last spring,
when he locked up his house and came
East. Last week he sent to California
for money and received it at Wheeling,
but was robbed, he claims, of $275 in
money and $200 In notes. He was left
penniless", but has sent to California for
more money.
